It's A Living, Part 1


Published 1975
Topics Chicago Hello


Excerpt from hour-long program inspired by Studs Terkel's best-selling book, Working. In the book, people talk about what they do all day and how they feel about it. The documentary explores what it is actually like to be on the job with some of these people.

The opening of the piece declares, "As experimental video journalists, we hope to demonstrate that new small-format television equipment allows people to speak for themselves, simply and directly and that real people in real situations make good television."

This excerpt features parking lot attendant Wheelin' Lovin Al Pommier.
